The Hospital Health Check
The AMA Victoria Hospital Health Check surveyed more than 1,000 junior doctors working in public hospitals across Victoria.
Unpaid work and fatigue due to working conditions continue to be major issues for Victorian doctors in training.
Of more than 1,000 junior doctors surveyed:
- 47 per cent reported making a clinical error due to fatigue
- 50 per cent said they had made an error due to excessive workload or understaffing
- 47 per cent reported never being paid for unrostered overtime
- 34 per cent raised serious concerns about their workload but were ignored
